Apparently the feds wanted to make a big stink out this case.

Two men from China — Shaoxiong Zhou, 42, and Shaoxia Huang, 33 — have pleaded guilty U.S. District Court in Brooklyn — to trafficking in counterfeit perfume. Zhou pleaded guilty Friday. His co-defendant pleaded on Aug. 3.

Authorities said the two admitted offering to supply counterfeit perfume to prospective buyers at a Las Vegas trade show in August 2010. The counterfeit perfume included the brands Lacoste, Polo Black and Armani Code.

Authorities said ultimately a cargo shipment containing counterfeit perfumes was purchased and shipped to the United States in 2011 and was seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents upon arrival.
